Dr. Jeffery Simon

Dr. Simon sought specialized training in both child and adolescent psychiatry and addictions medicine having seen firsthand the frequent problems of mis-diagnosis, poor medication management, and lack of improvement that all too often results from rushed office visits, subsequent inaccuracies in treatment planning and insufficient follow up.

Dr. Simon provides all patients, and their families, with the time and care
necessary to maximize their progress. Additionally, Dr. Simon believes in the importance of collaboration in the care of his patients. When mutually agreed upon, Dr. Simon works closely with family members, schools, psychotherapists, primary care physicians, speech therapists, ABA providers, and any other relevant people needed to support that patient and coordinate care.

Dr. Simon also has a range of support people that he is able to refer patients
to in helping to guide their overall treatment.
